Decomposition of 2-chloroethylphosphonic acid (Ethephon) was studied in dried films at various water vapor pressures (0.6 to 86.9 millimeters Hg, 3.2 to 93.9% relative humidity) and temperatures (20, 30, 40, and 50 C) at pH 6.3 and 7.0. The rate of decomposition could be determined equally well by [(14)C]Ethephon or ethylene measurements. The rate increases at increasing water vapor pressures at a constant temperature and pH, up to an optimum. The optimum vapor pressure for decomposition… Expand
